After the success of Fukrey, comes its more refined sequel, which is a laugh a minute riot and is a good black comedy about con jobs and the quirkiness of the characters. Pulkit Samrat (Honey) plays the exuberant guy always planning some get money soon schemes, his friend Choocha (Varun Sharma) and a sensible coolheaded Zafar (Ali Fazal) their young Sikh friend Lali (Manjyot) who plan a lottery scheme to defraud investors of millions of rupees in Delhi who later are after them after their get quick interest money scheme goes south and they somehow escape to land up in a secluded place. Also in the fray is an ex-convict Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chaddha) who has managed to escape from jail after bribing a minister who wants to be the CM and tries to use the gaggle of friends. Richa has to pay 10 crores to the minister to keep her drug business going. Also funny is Chu Cha foreseeing things especially about a treasure hid in a zoo where a tiger and a cub are kept in hiding. And they manage to keep a place where all the electronic and other costly goods of the minister are hidden. The films ends on a positive note with the minister being apprehended and the foursome being let off after the fraudulent money is given back to the depositors. Pulkit Samrat is refreshingly energetic. Varun Sharma is hilarious as Chu Cha. Richa Chadda’s demeanor and persona of a tough Haryanvi girl is effervescent. Manjyot Singh as the struggler hotelier is very good. Vishakha Singh and Priya Anand play the female interest. Pankaj Tripathi as Tripathi is understatedly funny bringing the house down. The music is good especially the Dharam Veer hit song being remixed in a good way. Technically a slick product with excellent cinematography. The background music lends to the drama. Overall an enjoyable comedy.
